Student Voices

Attending Stockton University has propelled me to new heights both socially and professionally. Over the past 4 years as an Osprey I have been part of Advisory Board Committees, Peer Mentoring Programs, Greek Life, Residential Life, Accreditation Review Boards, Graduate Student Programs, and more. Through each of my encounters at Stockton I have been able to discover my passions, strengthen my business acumen, and build a network of supportive peers & mentors. 

 

While enrolled as a student, I have had the privilege to work full-time for a Healthcare IT organization based out of NJ. This experience has given me the ability to demonstrate what I learned in the classroom by applying it in the workplace. Stockton has also allowed me to grow as an entrepreneur through Campus Resources and the network of entrepreneurs that Stockton has through Alumni & Affiliations.

Before even graduating from Stockton in May of 2017 with a B.S In Computer Science and Information Systems, I had multiple job offers, opportunities, and acceptance letters to Master’s programs all available to me. After considering every possible route I could take in my future, I decided to become a full-time Systems Administrator with Barrette Outdoor Living, an international company which I had taken an internship with before I graduated. I’m able to do the job that I’ve always wanted to do and work on some extra things on the side, such as my research into Virtual Reality, thanks to the School of Business. Their faculty and staff all helped facilitate my success and for that I am hugely thankful.

I graduated with my Bachelor of Science, concentration in Accounting, in May of 2015, and received my Master's of Business Administration May of 2017. The opportunities available to me at Stockton, such as work-study within the School of Business and all the different clubs/organizations, prepared me for success in my personal life as well as my professional career. I currently work for the New Jersey State government utilizing all of the skills and knowledge I gained along the way during my time at Stockton. As a proud Osprey Alumni, it is my pleasure to thank the School of Business staff and professors for setting excellent examples and helping me achieve my goals.

Upon graduating from Stockton's School of Business as a Business Studies major, I realized how prepared I was to seize my future. As a member of the first-ever Stockton School of Business Advisory Board, I had rare access to the resources the Department and University had to offer. My professors were insightful, engaging, and they represented everything that I had set out to become. As I sought an impactful career, I chose to become a State Investigator Trainee with the New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety's, Division of Gaming Enforcement. This has allowed me to feel a sense of purpose that certainly would not have been possible without the help of faculty in the School of Business.
